I have an uncle who is a priest, and a few years ago, after marrying my cousin and her brand new husband, instead of wrapping up the traditional Catholic Mass with the proper closing of “This Mass is ended. Let us go in peace,” he enthusiastically bellowed: “This marriage is ended! Let us go in peace.”
It’s true that ideally, your wedding dress will be the ultimate reflection of your personal style. Chances are that if you’re a really traditional, classic girl, you won’t have, say, an underlay of fire-engine red tulle sticking out from underneath your knee-length dress—and that if your eccentric outfits are your calling card, you won’t select a strapless, A-line wedding gown with nary an embellishment.
So while it’s not like you will fit perfectly into any one of these particular boxes, of course, this is kinda fun: a little breakdown of what the style of your wedding dress says about your personality.

Video: It’s Worth Getting Frozen’s “Let It Go” Stuck In Your Head to Enjoy This Best Man’s Sung Wedding Toast
Listen, I was hesitant to watch this, too, since I feel like I just cleared this damn song (which, I mean, I happen to actually enjoy—it’s a pretty stinking cute movie) out of my head … But I was curious.
A best man named Joey Boyes at a recent English wedding decided, for reasons unknown, to set his best man speech to the tune of Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” which he managed to do while still hitting all of the required best man-speech points: how much he loves the groom, how fab the couple is together, he references the groom’s late father, and tells a few funny stories.
We’re impressed. And okay with humming this for the rest of today. If you want to get something else stuck in your head, watch this.
